BACK TO WORK WITH NEW BIKE DESIGNS AND PROSPECTS

Our new model: Fixie bamboo bike
Our new model: Fixie bamboo bike

We’re pleased to advise that we reactivated our Bamboo Bikes Social Enterprise appeal at the end of October and during the last 3 months, our local team of artisans, led by our amazing bamboo bike designer, Deni Nugraha, have designed and built 3 new bamboo bike models: Balance bike, BMX and single-speed (fixie) road bike. We’ve been lucky to have a very talented volunteer French Mechanical Engineer, a professional in CAD-Geometrical modelling design, who has created all our designs in detailed computer illustrations in all views, including 3-D isometric views.

Whilst we’ve only sold 10 bikes in the last 3 months, 2 of which were hand carried to UK and 5 shipped to Bandung in West Java, where they are being fitted with electric motors as part of a government trial for Denpasar City, we recently had a visit by some senior Indonesian Government officials from Jakarta who toured our bamboo bike workshop and were very impressed with the high quality and unique aspects of all of our bikes, accessories and small bamboo handicrafts. We do expect that this visit will result in further communication from relevant government departments and do hope for Indonesia-wide exposure!

We are presently in the process of recruiting a qualified marketing and communications professional who will take a major role in promoting our bamboo bikes and unique handicrafts, not only in Indonesia but also internationally, as we presently have serious enquiries from the UK and USA.

We are still in urgent need of ‘seed’ funds to support our marketing and sales staff and build up a stock of bikes wit the target of developing high sales demand so that we can rapidly train more local graduates and other unemployed youth as top level bamboo artisans with the potential to develop small community owned bamboo businesses whilst still in the East Bali Bamboo Bikes team.
